London Family Mini Session | Plano, TX Family Photographer

Mini sessions during the holiday season are always so much fun for me. I get the chance to take photos for many different people, from couples to families and even pets. This allows me to grab a variety of shots in a pretty short time frame. Plus, let’s face it, families with little ones can’t always last a whole hour anyway so you really have to leverage the “focused” time you can get!

Here’s a collage of photos from my holiday photo session in Plano, TX with the London Family. They are returning clients, and their girls are all so full of life!

They went with red, white, and navy as their color scheme, and I brought along my navy quilt to accent their photos.

Background and Birth Story

Since I was 15 years old, I volunteered in my church’s nursery. I have always had a soft spot for babies and seeing their little fingers and toes just puts a big smile on my face. One of my other passions in life is photography and marrying the two (babies and photography) just seemed to mesh. I didn’t immediately go into birth photography when I started my business, nor did I do newborns at first, but somehow God led me into this special niche. Now, I couldn’t imagine giving it up.

Photographing a baby entering the world for the first time was such an experience. I didn’t know if my emotions would get the best of me or not but I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. As I was in the room of my first birth story and as the mother became increasingly more dilated, I became more and more excited (all the while suppressing my inner “giddy” in front of the parents). As the baby’s head was seen for the first time, I began clicking away and then he was finally here! Capturing such an amazing moment and freezing those happy tears and big kisses between mom and dad made me realize that this is where I belonged.

I am a birth photographer & I love it!

Photo: This isn’t a photo from my first birth experience, but rather a photo of a repeat birth client. Her first born son entered the world in 2014 and daughter in 2016 – the resemblance was so uncanny that I just had to put them side-by-side and share! Same hospital, same doctor (and same grip on the babies!), and same parents 😉

Day Water Birth Photography | K-Rae Images DFW Birth Photographer

BIRTH Photography – what an amazing experience it is to watch a baby making his/her first appearance into the world!

I was so blessed to be able to photograph the Day’s 4th baby being born. It was their first water birth and the mom (Mrs. Lindsay) did so wonderfully and was a sweetheart the whole time. I’ll share a little secret with you that was the funniest thing that happened during little Jacob’s birth… right as Lindsay was at the height of giving birth she happened to say a curse word and instead of continuing, she  immediately apologized to everyone in the room. Can you believe that she actually apologized while right in the middle of having Jacob (who was a 9.0lb baby boy by the way!). Needless to say, the Day’s had a beautiful baby boy born at 8:31am on June 17th.

I am very excited to be able to take Jacob Michael’s newborn photos very soon – keep an eye out for a special newborn policeman. 😉

Skowronski Maternity Portraits | K-Rae Images Plano, TX Photographer

8 months pregnant  – this radiant mama flew into Dallas, TX for me to take maternity portraits of her! I felt so honored to take her pictures, and we had the lovely MUA & hairstylist from Lisa Max Beauty do Ann’s hair and makeup. This mama was willing to do anything, including posing like a mermaid in the water 😉  I hope I get to meet your little one!

As soon as I met the Wegrzyn family, I could see the love they have for their kids – they were so sweet together. Can you believe that this session was their first time to ever hire a professional photographer?!

Happy 1st birthday Jimmy – hope it was a great one!
